Harrison Ford Wants Nothing To Do With The Han Solo Spin-Off Movie

'Somebody else is going to have the burden of being young.'

Veteran actor Harrison Ford wants nothing to do with the movie spin-off about his Star Wars character Han Solo.

It was reported earlier this month that more than 2,500 young actors including Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson have auditioned to play a young version of Harrison's rebellious pilot in a 2018 spin-off.

However, Harrison, who reprised the role for the fourth time in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, wants no involvement in the casting process and any aspects of production.

During a press conference in London on Thursday, he said, "I don't know what to think about that. I'm glad that somebody else is going to have the burden of being young. It's well beyond my understanding or control and I want nothing to do with it, in the nicest possible way. I know it will be well done... it's nothing to do with me."

Harrison was joined by co-stars Carrie Fisher, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong'o, Gwendoline Christie, director J.J. Abrams and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan at the London event, which took place the same day as the U.K. release of the new movie.
